Proposed is a new simple technique for achieving band rejection
characteristics in ultra-wideband monopole antennas. Two band
notches were added to an existing UWB antenna by gluing a
padding patch printed on a small single-layer piece of commercial sub-
strate. The design of the new proposed structure has a controllable
rejection in the 5 GHz WLAN and 8 GHz ITU frequencies while main-
taining a wideband performance from 2.9 GHz to more than 12 GHz
based on VSWR ≤ 2. A good agreement between measurement and
simulation was achieved. Measurements confirm that the technique
introduces negligible antenna radiation pattern distortion except at
the notched frequencies.
